These are my impressions of the show "Rumble in da Jungle" by Sincollectief/Arenberg/tArsenaal for Zomer van Antwerpen 2014, presented in the Antwerp Boxing Academy.
This was the ideal venue for this innovative and thought-provoking mix of real-life boxing, great soul, funk and salsa music, slam poetry and spoken word.
An exciting rollercoaster ride that deals with life in the urban jungle, inspired by the documentary about the 1974 Ali-Foreman fight.
(note: this is a coordination of two performances, which accounts for some glitches in continuity: performers, dress etc.)
I was kindly granted backstage access, which resulted in another gallery with some portraits:
And if this gallery did not contain enough intense boxing action for you, get another fix here:
